If you haven't made a trip to Alaska, DO IT NOW!  Had a great time there for the last 2 weeks.  And if you do it right, it doesn't have to be expensive.  Here are some shots:

That's funny.  There's no where I love more to get lost than in Alaska. :)

Looks like a great trip, Brett!  Thanks for posting the pictures.

It's a perfect place to get lost.  As long as you have some general idea of direction :)

Early season was great, crowds weren't bad and no bugs for the most part.  Hate to imagine the mosquitoes in August!

I've been there a number of times in July & August.  Sometimes the skeeters aren't bad at all, sometimes I hit right in the middle of the peak hatch and there are clouds of the beasts in every dinner I eat.  The timing varies a little bit every year, it's hard to plan for sure in the summer.  Same goes with timing the salmon runs, for what it's worth.  I usually get the luxury of being there 3-4 weeks a a stretch, so even if I hit the peak mosquitoes they tend to abate before the trip's end.  Usually.
